Harpoon's UFO White Hefeweissen

I like a nice, wheat beer probably more than the average man. However, I do not have the physical characteristics to really hold my own when someone challenges my masculinity when I put fruit in my beer. Do you know what soothes a black eye and a broken ego? Harpoon's UFO White!

It hails from Boston, Massachusetts and the UFO stands for UnFiltered Offerings, in case you wondered. I don't typically care for most white hefeweissens but this one turns the tables. And if you stick a little orange in it like it was a stuffed pig, you're gravy baby. These are ideal on hot days outside when people are usually doing work. It's a crispy, light, cloudy beer that you can basically drink, like, a few dozen of and not realize it until you stand up. But be careful because it is 4.8% ABV. It's a little pricier than your Buds and Coors but reasonable when you want a beer with flavor. It'll run you around $9.00 for a sixer but well worth it. So as long as you're cool with people giving you flack about putting fruit in your beer, pick it up. I suggest learning a lot of witty insults before bringing this to a tailgate party and stuff.

Drinkability: 9/10
Taste : 8/10
Value: 5/10

Overall: 7.3/10
